Pau Gasol leads Spain to victory over Brazil

Spanish center Pau Gasol helped his country ease past Brazil 82-63 in their Group A game in the FIBA Basketball World Cup on Monday night.  Gasol netted 26 points for the host nation and made nine rebounds, while his teammate Sergio Rodriquez -- playing as guard -- added another 12 point to the tally.  From the first quarter to the last, Spain kept a steady lead over Brazil, closing out the game comfortably. Brazil did attempt a fightback in the second quarter when they narrowed the gap to 45-32 but ultimately playmaker guard Leandro Barbosa's 11 points and power forward Anderson Varejao's 10 points were not enough to break Spain's dominance.   Monday's results are as follows:

Iran - Serbia: 70-83

France - Egypt: 94-55

Brazil - Spain: 63-82
